Special Issue "Education for the Professions in Times of Change "
A special issue of Education Sciences (ISSN 2227-7102).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
We would like to propose a Special Education, which is focused on a critical appraisal of the learning and status of professionals at a time when distrust and dismissal of professional expertise is a significant trend and where accountability and commodification agendas are impinging daily on the status and roles of professionals. Increasingly, education for the professions is based in universities, yet academy is increasingly accused of credentialism, even whilst the career trajectories of academics themselves can be all too precarious. At the same time it is important to acknowledge that ‘Profession’ is itself a slippery and overused term, imbued with overtones of both high status expertise and conspiratorial exclusivity, yet sufficiently elastic to ‘cover’ both the ‘professional’ footballer and his/her ‘professional’ foul. This Special Issue will feature both theory-based think pieces and studies based on primary data.
